Stephanie H. has been selected as our Wild Client of the Month for July! Stephanie has made great strides since joining us a couple of years ago in her mobility and strength. She has pushed herself in every workout and we couldn’t be more proud of the progress she has made in her journey towards better health.
Stephanie shares her story below.
How did you first hear about Wild Workouts & Wellness?
For years I had a few friends that are clients of Wild that love their experience with Wild and were urging me to give it a try. I resisted it because I thought it would be too much for me both mentally and physically as I was recovering from an accident. Fast forward a few years later, I was re-introduced to Wild by a friend and am grateful for the push to do it.
Do you have a favorite exercise? What do you like about it?
This changes weekly. Any exercise where I see improvement, I like. But if I had to choose it would probably be doing floor work on core i.e. med ball roll ups. I like them because I get to lay down.
Least favorite? What don’t you like about it?
I dread lunges of any sort. Reverse lunges, side lunges, forward lunges. I dislike them all equally.
What achievements are you most proud of?
Generally speaking, my increased mobility and strength make me happy. But also the weight loss and slimming down make me proud and want to push myself to get to the next level of fitness.
Why Wild? What do you like most about Wild Workouts and Wellness?
I think Wild really distinguishes itself from other fitness clubs. It does so through a variety of ways. The individual coaching even in a group setting is very helpful and all of the coaches are very aware of each person’s individual level of fitness as they offer modifications. There is also a strong sense of community among the Wild clients, and between coaches and clients. It feels very much like the Bay View culture.
What advice would you give to other Wild peeps?
I really should be the one taking advice from other Wild clients. But I guess for those that might be just starting out, I would say go at your own pace. If you are feeling bad about your current state of fitness, forgive yourself, accept where you are in the process and look forward.
Do you have a favorite song or type of music for working out?
Anything but Dylan. (just kidding). I like all genres.
What are some challenges or goals you are currently working on?
Strength building and weight loss are my two priorities.
